Professor Hall has extensive national and international collaborations across various areas of respiratory science and medicine including in cystic fibrosis, asthma, chronic respiratory disease of preterm birth, and neuromuscular disorders. His research activities included investigating markers of early lung damage in infants and young children with cystic fibrosis as part of the AREST CF group; assessing the long-term respiratory impacts of preterm birth; preventing respiratory adverse events in children undergoing anaesthesia for surgery; developing appropriate clinical testing platforms to assess respiratory function in children with neuromuscular disorders; and developing reference values to improve the accuracy of lung function assessment in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island populations.

Professor Hall has an established international reputation in respiratory health and consistently contributed to international respiratory health research including contribution to guidelines and agenda setting committees. He was Co-chair of the Global Lung Function Initiative Network that developed reference ranges for commonly used respiratory function tests.
